Well, here is myÂ firstÂ attempt at making sub rolls or Hoagie rolls. They need some work still appearance wise but they tasted really good.
- 2 1/2 teaspoonsÂ dry active yeastÂ (1 pkgs)
- 1/4Â cupÂ sugar
- 1 cupÂ water, room temp (NOT too hot)
- 1 1/2 tablespoonsÂ butter, melted
- 1 tablespoonsÂ salt (or less)
- 2 1/2 cupsÂ all-purpose flour
- 1Â egg white
- sesame seedÂ (optional)
Dissolve sugar in water and add yeast to proof. Rest one to two minutes.
Melt butter and, along with the salt, stir into yeast mixture.
Mix in flour, 1/2 cup at a time until desired consistency is reached (dough should not be terribly sticky to the touch, but should have plenty of “give” and not be too tough).
Knead until VERY well developed (important!). Your dough is finished when you can tear a small piece off, roll into a ball and stretch to form a nearly transparent “window” between your fingers without it tearing.Â I put in my mixer with the dough hook for 5 minutes on a medium speed.Â
Cover with plastic wrap and let stand until doubled in bulk (approx 1 hour).Â I let mine sit for 2 1/2 hours.
- Roll your dough into long, thin “logs” and place about 3″ apart on the pans. Slash each loaf every inch and a half with a knife.
- Let double in size (approx 1 hour)
- Brush with egg white and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
- Bake in a 400Â°F oven until golden brown. (About 18-22 mins)
Here is what we ended up having.. Mango Cilantro w/ Spicy Lime Mayo Subs.. Sorry for the bad picture, I wasn’t going to share this picture.. LOL.
